Yes...that slab comes in occassionally and offers a nice alternative (Pitch 1) to Gully #1 if you want to avoid the slog up the hill!  ;)

You're talking about different places. Al, and earlier in the thread, Strand, are taking about the buttress WAY up on climber left, other side of that brook/drainage (Slipstream in guidebook I believe) which is actually on Mount Willey (not Willard) and has a long steep narrow scree run-out leading to it. Winkler did climb it with a client years ago and summited Willey... then had to hike down and around to grab their packs on the tracks  :o

Smear has a good story about soloing Slipstream with me a few winters back... Polar Bear Swim Club anyone?

That slab you mentioned as an alternate start to Gully #1 is nice when in, but Gully #1 does not equate the kinda of slog the area Al/Strand were referring to... :)

There is some decent ice that forms up in the Willey Brook Ravine. This is where Streamline and Flat Foot Floogie are (in guidebook). In a gully to the right is a great steep line Candle Pin (also in the guide). To the right of that were three other flows. we climbed and recorded the routes last season. if kurt was out there climbing the others im sure he climbed these as well! i posted them on mountain project to document them....
